The Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy and Hard Times
by Jennifer Worth

Published by Penguin

Amazon.comBarnes & NobleIndieBound

An unforgettable story of motherhood, the bravery of a community, and the strength of remarkable and inspiring women.

At the age of twenty-two, Jennifer Worth leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife to postwar London's East End slums. The colorful characters she meets while delivering babies -- from the plucky, warmhearted nuns with whom she lives, to the woman with twenty-four children, to the prostitutes and dockers of the city's seedier side -- illuminate a fascinating time in history. Beautifully written and utterly moving, The Midwife will touch the hearts of anyone who is, and everyone who has, a mother.
